Postscript to file in WIndows

I have the windows version of the Student addition of Mathematica 2.2. I 
want to print to postscript on a floppy so I can use the good printers
we have at work. I have a sucky dot matrix printer at home that I can
print on but it is slow and sounds like someone opening a oil drum with
a chain saw. So I would like to print at work. The problem is when I
print to file I get garbage. I know that Mathematica generates Postscript
internally (it says it is) but when I print to file get some binary mess
that is not postscript. I even changed my printer settings to Laserwriter
hopeing that would work. Any suggestions?
